No, you aren't. This has been the case since the 80s.

I know several people who have, but I am not sure if they are going to University or not. I think
one of them has at least applied [to university], so it could be worth a try ?

I think you might have to pay it back (with interest) if you get into uni. Not certain though.

Try the www.dwp.gov.uk site, from which the following is quoted:
[q1]>[/q1]
If you are aged 16 or 17 you are unlikely to have worked for long enough since reaching age 16 to
pay enough NI contributions to get contribution- based JSA. If you are an unemployed 16 or 17 year
old you may be able to get income- based JSA for a short period in special circumstances. For
example, if one of the following applies:

you are forced to live away from your parents and will suffer severe hardship if you do not get JSA
you are a member of a couple who are responsible for a child

<end quote>

So unless your circumstances are special, no JSA.
